    Lightbulb 2011-2020 Decade Lock Challenge!

    This Thread is livicated to all the newbies who cannot make up their minds as to which size to start their locks.
    If you can set aside the next ten years to grow your locks, start them small, very small, and rock a tiny set of locks first.
    Then, after 3 to 5 years, marry your locks {wrap two of them together all over your head}, and then you will have a larger set to rock!
    This idea was based on a response in the Inspirational Thread with all the beautiful locks of various sizes and colors.
    Some will not make the whole ten years, but seven to eight for two different size locks will be just as good.

    I swear you are in my head today! I've been looking at your pictures and others trying to decide what size I want my locs. I really prefer bigger ones, but was wondering if I should start small, and just marry locs in a year or two. I can always go bigger, but can't go smaller, so i've basically decided to start with microbraids. I will definitely join this thread, but not until the 27th(when I get my hair done.)

    I love it! This is where I am right now! I want thick locs. However, my loctitician started them small and said I should marry them later.She said that you can always combine later but you can't go smaller. So, I started in Sept. with smaller parts and comb coils. Now that I am budding, I am kinda glad that she insisted on this method!

    So, I accept this challenge. It makes great sense to me!

    I'm in! Considering my hair texture, it'll probably be 10 years before I'm totally loc'ed anyway.

    @Queen- I plan on starting with braids the size of yours. Is that a good start or should I go smaller?

    I have 316 braidlocks. If you want to go smaller and plan to latch for maint. then go ahead, but if you plan to palm roll, you might want to make them a little bigger, like around 200 or so.

    No, I will strictly be latching this time. I have a heavy hand and I think I over twisted many of my locs, so many of them were kind of "scraggly" in the middle while the ends and root were thicker. That's the main reason why I took them down to start over again.
    How long does it take you to latch 316 braids? I didn't have nearly that many with my first set. I'll have to go back and look at your pics to see what size they are now.

    It takes several hours, but I usually spread out the time over a few days. I do between 50-75 each day, Once every 10 weeks or so.
